Cappadocia Green Tour ( Ihlara Tour )

We pick you up from your hotels between 09:30 and 09:45 with our licensed guide and private vehicles and we pass to the Göreme Panorama view point area, which is the first part of our tour. Here you can watch the Goreme valley with its magnificent view, and you can also take panoramic photos of Goreme.

After the information and photo break given by our guide, we move on to our next stop, Derinkuyu Underground City. It is the largest underground city in our region. It has 8 floors and is 55 meters deep. We see and visit the Kitchen - Ventilation chimney - sliding rock doors - Church - Water well - Stable - School sections one by one with our guide.

Then we move to Ihlara Valley. It is the deepest and largest canyon of Cappadocia. After descending the stairs of approximately 400 steps, we visit the Ağaçaltı Church, it is one of the well-preserved churches in Cappadocia. Then we start the walk from the edge of the Melendiz River. We start our trek for approximately 4 kilometers up to Belisırma Village. During the walk, you will have fun in the natural life of Ihlara Valley. You can see many different flowers and small animals. After this 1 hour and 15 minute nature walk, we have lunch at a restaurant by the river in Belisırma Village, located in the middle of the Ihlara Valley.

After dinner, we go to Selime Monastery. This is also known as the cathedral and is the oldest Christian cathedral in Cappadocia. Here you can see the kitchen, the missionary school, the church and the chapel. However, the frescoes are somewhat difficult to see. The top point of Selime Monastery has a magnificent view.

At the last stop of our green tour, we get information about the precious and semi-precious stones of the Cappadocia region, which we call the Silver Workshops.

Then we pass to Pigeon Valley near Uçhisar. Here you can watch the unique panoramic view of Güvercinlik Valley and see hundreds of pigeon houses and nests.

We end our tour here and return to the Hotel.
